A new scholarship programme has been announced by Google, Pluralsight and Udacity to help more than one lakh developers and students across India to improve their skills and employability. Google is sponsoring 1,30,000 scholarships on both the platforms so that developers can access advanced learning curriculum.
“Since we announced our skilling initiative in India, 210,000 students have completed Google developed courses on Udacity, with 117,000 students completing the course this year, said William Florance, Google India’s Developer Products Group and Skilling Lead.
The scholarships will provide a space for developers to improve skills so as to increase their employability in emerging technologies like mobile and web development, AR/VR, machine learning, artificial intelligence and cloud platforms.
